This film uses a childs curiosity about animals to convey its messages. Young Helen learns that she cleans herself just like her cat Kitty does. Unfortunately, Helen doesnt pick up on the fact the Kitty doesn't like to be groped by a room full of grimy school children. Films featuring animals and young children are usually as torturous to watch, as they were to make.

I Thought This would Be About Some Chick Going To The Racetrack
But instead, a kitty and a kiddie getting washed up in a 1940's bathroom. Then, off to the pet show.
This would have been better if Kitty went after the canary. Screaming kids and feathers flying around. Would have been a more exciting ending. Instead we just see a toothless kid. Tiresome.

One thing we know for sure..."Kitty" is very grateful that "Mother" didn't come looking for her next, on the day she chopped her daughter's hair off with a butcher knife. lol

Today's the pet show!
An attractive yet generically named cat is the main attraction in this personal hygiene film for young children. When Helen wakes up one morning, she glances at her calendar and is suddenly reminded that the day of the school pet show has arrived. Grabbing her feline companion Kitty, a competitor in the show, Helen saunters into the bathroom and begins cleaning her arms and face with a bar of soap and a washcloth while Kitty simply licks her fur in order to develop a prize-winning appearance. After breakfast, Helen carries her empty dishes over to the kitchen counter and then places Kitty into a special cage before heading for school. Once the pet show commences, Kitty garners the adoration of all of Helen's classmates and is excessively petted by everyone in the room before receiving the highly coveted "The Winner" ribbon. Helen's dialogue throughout the film is rather quirky at times and makes the film quite entertaining.

Get your filthy claws off me!!
Odd film that compares a little girl named Helen and her cat, affectionately named Kitty, and their cleaning habits. Although this is narrated by Helen, the VOICE is clearly someone much much older doing a childÂs voice. Anyways, the minute Helen wakes up, she goes for the cat, (who wisely resists going with her) and off they go to the washroom to clean up. Uhhh, I donÂt like this where this is going. Next scene Helen has her shirt off amd we watch uncomfortably as Helen says to the cat, ÂYou want to watch me do you?Â before she washes up, shirtless. Rather strange. After this, Helen brushes her hair, and I was WINCING at her brushing the tangles out. OW! Soon sheÂs ready for school, and since today is the pet show, sheÂs got her fpet shoved into a carrier to go to school with! The final scene shows the cat almost being petted to death, lol. Slightly strange.

I Am A Cat
An excrutiating hygine film aimed at 1st graders. The film tries, in an oh so cutsey manner, to draw the parallels between a little girl getting ready for school and a cat. Like most hygine films of the era, this one is very obsessive compulsive and dated. This does make good 'Bot fodder with its very annoying faux little girl narrator who says things like "It'd be easier if arms didn't go up all the way to my shoulders." It doesn't help that the cat, which is almost as big as the girl, seems rather reluctant about the whole thing. Topless little girls just shows how much attitudes have changed in that department. However, beyond the annoyingly cutsey atmosphere, there really isn't much that we haven't heard or seen in the million of other hygine films. There are moments, like the girl cleans off the table and puts everything on a tray, like she's bussing a table at Denny's, that just beg to be riffed, but not enough to really boggle at.
